Monrovia – Referring to her Vice President Joseph Boakai as a “trusted friend and confidante, Liberian President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf declared moments ago at the Unity Party’s convention held at the Samuel Kanyon Doe Sports Complex in Paynesville that she will be taking her quiet but loyal veep into 2011 Presidential elections next year.

“He has been my friend and will always be my friend and I am proud to present to you the vice standard bearer of the Unity Party,” the President told partisans of the ruling party Saturday.

The decision by Sirleaf lays to rest concerns for many that the party fearing fielding an ageing ticket would drop Boakai for a younger vice presidential candidate.
